There’s a fine line between being MacGyver and being stupid. Apparently, there’s a new trend where people who don’t have tanning oil improvise . . . by putting COCA-COLA all over their bodies before they go out in the sun. And they say the caramel color in the Coke helps bronze them up good and quick. Unfortunately, it’s a terrible idea. Coke contains a lot of chemicals, but none of them provide any SPF protection . . . so you’re really just accelerating the chance of BURNING your skin and potentially even developing skin cancer down the line.
